Tilray is among 43 organizations seeking five limited medical cannabis licenses to be issued by the state. Under the state’s Compassionate Care Act, enacted last year, New York will select five operators and license each of them to open four dispensaries, for a total of 20 statewide.
The Colonie operation proposed by Tilray would be a manufacturing facility, not a dispensary, Campito’s representative, Daniel Hershberg, told the board.
“People will not come here to buy it,” Hershberg said. “It will be shipped to other locations.”
